Program Notes
Recital Duo (for Rudimental Snare Drum with Pedal Bass Drum and Concert Snare Drum with Hi-Hat) was the winning composition of the 1993 Percussive Arts Society Composition Contest. Recital Duo was dedicated to Dr. Gary Olmstead, Dan's percussion teacher at I.U.P., long time mentor, and friend.

This multi-percussion duet explores a wide variety of tonal possibilities in conjunction with the contrasting styles of rudimental and concert snare drumming. The unifying element is the pervasive, underlying "boom-chick" accompaniment that generates forward momentum throughout the majority of each major section. Coupled with carefully executed dynamics, several slick metric modulations and rhythmic evolutions provide interesting twists and turns in setting up new tempi and grooves. Briefly recapping material found earlier in the piece, a short, but smokin' finale brings Recital Duo to an exciting conclusion!
